The unique looks and affordable price, and significant opportunities are the main advantages of this series. Telescopes of this series give clear and contrasting images of the Moon and planets.
PowerSeeker 80EQ is a lens telescope that collects over 130 times more light than the human eye. It is mounted on a parallactic assembly with microtours, allowing you to conveniently drive the rotation of celestial bodies. The 80 mm lens is already a significant observation instrument: it allows the observation of the Sun (special filter required), the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter along with moons, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Within the range of the telescope, there are lighter comets, asteroids, and beyond the Planetary System: many galaxies, nebulae, globular and open clusters, double and multiple stars. The telescope, due to its reasonable weight, is ideally suited as a portable device that can take vehicles in areas with better transparency of air away from large cities.

This device focuses a lot of light. Looking directly at the sun through this device can result in partial or complete loss of vision. For the observation of the Sun, we recommend the safest method of spectacle projection, that is, projecting the image of the target of our day star on a piece of paper.
